Perfect Match Mood Color Changing Gel Twilight Skies

I’m featuring two colors in today’s post – both are from Perfect Match Mood Color Changing Gel.

First and foremost, let me start off by saying that today is my BFF Claudia’s birthday as well as my mother’s. In an ideal world, I’d be featuring the colors you see below on their hands as a celebration of who they are in my life, but…Claudia’s been sick and her poor kid has been going through so much; my mother, bless her 84 year old heart, hates to wake up before the sun sets. You’d think she was a vampire, right? No, she just likes to potter around super late at night and then go to bed when the sun rises.

Anyway, I wanted to say Happy Birthday to two wonderful women who mean a lot to me.

Now, I have to say, Perfect Match Mood Color Changing Gel always gets it right for me. I love, love, love, thermal/color change/mood nail polishes. There is so much fun in a couple of coats. Now in the photos below, you will see that it’s two coats. That said, much as I love color change anything, I have issues with gel. I simply don’t have the patience to sit through the removal – I file/break the shininess of the polish with a rough grit file and then liberally soak a cotton ball with acetone, take some foil and wrap up the finger. I let it sit for five minutes and then booya! Easy peel off. I think I just hate acetone in general.

Enough of my rambling…on to the pictures! There are two colors featured — Shamrock and Twilight Skies. Shamrock is a shocking/neon/bright green when warm and when cold, turns a beautiful deep forest green. Sadly, because I run so warm all the time, you don’t really get to see the color change. Twilight Skies, when cold, runs a super shocking/neon/bright pink (woo hoo!) and when cold, a dark, mysterious purple.

I purchased these gels from a nail polish store I frequent.

See how they fared on me below!

Perfect Match Mood Color Changing Gel ShamrockWhen I was swatching, it was slightly cold outside, but not enough for the tips of my fingers to turn that beautiful forest green I had mentioned earlier.

Someone asked me why I don’t use a light box – I’ll be honest: I don’t think light boxes truly reflect what a color is like in real life. While I think a light box can get you prettier, edgier shots of a polish, I don’t think it’s very realistic. So while my images may not be as richly saturated with jewel tones or deep hues, you are getting a real-life look at the polish in action.

Thank you for making it this far. If you liked what you read, please share this – sharing is caring!

À bientôt!

    That’s so funny that your mom is like that! I am the same way though. I need to get some mood polishes, though my fingers are always freezing so I wonder how well they would work on me. 😛

      I know I’d let my inner vampire goddess go wild if I could, but…it’s not gonna happen. Not while there is a work schedule in place. Yuck. I love mood change/thermal polishes. I’m going to be featuring more. 😀

    Now, that is super-cool polish! I would try it in a heartbeat but I hate removing gel polish. It makes my nails split 🙁 PS I thought your photos were great!

      I have to agree that gel polish removal is a pain! When it’s done right, it’s easy…but I get so impatient that I peel it all off, removing some of my nail, too. BAD GIRL. lol

    I love these colors!! I love gel polish, but I’ve never tried a thermal polish. I love the idea of it though! Your cuticles are SO healthy looking!! My hands are SO dry right now. 🙁
